Use a custom render to preview and to take a photography in Xamarin Forms

I create a custom render, This allow me to have a preview of the camera into Xamarin forms in IOS and Android.

But i need take a photography, can you help me to take the photography from the selected scene in the form?

    If you only want to preview picked images we could consume this plugin in Forms:
    It helped us pick photos from the system gallery or take pictures.
    If you want to add some custom effects using custom renderer, try to specify your requirements and post what you have done here.

  • I would like get the preview but in real time, in order to take the best picture, but i need add this preview into a form, i can not use the Android or ios interface to take the picture.

    What do you mean "you want to get best pictures in real time"?
    This plugin helps you call native apis to consume camera features. We could take or pick pictures using that.
